About Us

Promoting Regional Australia

Regional Migration Australia is proud to be a regionally based migration consultancy.  We work with businesses across Australia to manage temporary and permanent skills shortages.

Kristie and Trish both have recent work experience with the Victorian State Government (Regional Development Victoria), and have a solid understanding of the key levers for driving regional economic growth.

Regional Migration Australia is a strong advocate for regional migration outcomes and welcomes contact from Local Government Authorities and other organisations who are interested in promoting regional investment through Australia’s skilled migration programme.

Investment attraction is a key priority for strong regional development.  We encourage interested skilled business migrants and Australian business owners to contact us for discussion on potential opportunities around skilled business migration.
